Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Panzanella


You'll need

3 red capsicum For drizzling: olive oil 650 gm mixed baby tomatoes, large ones quartered, smaller ones halved 2 oxheart tomatoes, coarsely chopped ½ tsp caster sugar 300 gm day-old sourdough bread, coarsely torn 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 60 ml (¼ cup) aged red wine vinegar ½ small Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2/3 cup (loosely packed) small basil leaves

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place capsicum in a roasting pan, drizzle with a little olive oil and roast, turning occasionally, until browned and skin blisters (20-25 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and stand to steam (20 minutes). Peel and tear into coarse pieces (discard skin and cores) and set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, combine tomatoes and sugar in a large bowl, season to taste and stand until juicy (25-30 minutes). Add bread, extra-virgin olive oil, vinegar, onion and garlic. Toss to combine and stand for 30 minutes. Add roast capsicum and basil, toss to combine, adjust seasoning to taste and serve.
This recipe is from the March 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

This Tuscan specialty is the perfect answer to the question of what to do with good day-old bread. If you have fresh bread and can’t wait a day to make this, tear up the loaf and dry it out a little in a low oven. Panzanella is great served alongside a simple roast, barbecued chicken or grilled fish. We’ve added roast capsicum to the mix – it’s not traditional, but it’s delicious.
